IPPNY supports S.2352-A (Parker) / A.2720-A (Cusick). This legislation would require the State Energy Planning Board to determine the technical and economic feasibility and electric system reliability impact of meeting a 100 percent renewable energy goal by 2030 or by 2050, along with a 100 percent greenhouse gas emission (GHG) reduction goal from 1990 levels by 2050, including an incremental target of at least a 50 percent reduction from 1990 levels by 2030. The bills would evaluate whether and how these goals could be implemented in a way that preserves electric system reliability and protects consumers. This legislation would require the State Energy Planning Board to conduct the study by September 1, 2020, and there would also be a public hearing and comment process on the study, as required under the existing Energy Planning Law.

IPPNY strongly opposes Parts FF and GG of A.9508 / S.7508. This Budget language would significantly expand the New York Power Authority's (NYPA or Authority) authority to provide energy-related projects, programs and services and to develop, own and operate new renewable electric generating facilities in the State. This Budget language could result in higher costs for energy consumers and sends the wrong signal to the private sector whose investment is critically needed to meet the State's renewable energy, energy storage, and emission reduction goals.

With the announcement earlier this year that the Indian Point Energy Center will cease operations in 2021, the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) began conducting a Deactivation Assessment to determine whether the facility's retirement will result in a reliability need for the system. The Deactivation Assessment, released today, found that New York will have enough resources available when Indian Point retires, assuming planned resources come online.
